LAX shooting not an argument for gun control

LOS ANGELES, November 4, 2013 — Los Angeles International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the nation, quickly became a ghost town last week after a lone gunman opened fire. A man armed with an assault rifle and carrying a handbag full of anti-government materials opened fire at Los Angeles International Airport last Friday, at approximately 9:02 am, killing one person. Before the shooting, the suspect reportedly asked several LAX patrons if they were TSA, the acronym for Transportation Security Administration agency, a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The suspect was immediately chased down by local authorities.

In the aftermath of the shootings, LAX authorities discovered anti-American pamphlets and Gestapo type sentiments in the suspect’s belongings.

Gerardo Hernandez of Los Angeles, a TSA officer, is the only known victim of last Friday’s shooting, but some wonder why he was gunned down for simply being a member of TSA, which holds  no federal rank. The suspect attempted to fire at two more TSA officials; before he was taken in by L.A. Police.

Authorities say the suspect, identified as Paul Anthony Ciancia, a 23-year-old Los Angeles native, had begun showing signs of discontent with the federal government; through social media searches and text messages to relatives.

FBI officials claimed that Ciancia’s family became extremely concerned after he sent relatives “angry” texts messages, venting about the federal government, New World Order conspiracies and alleged plots by Secret governments within the U.S., controlling the President and the nation.

According to FBI reports, there were more than 100 rounds of unused ammunition in Cianica’s bag. Authorities were monitoring the suspect, thanks to reports by his family of his erratic behavior. Cianicia’s rambling and inappropriate text messages raised serious concerns with his parents.

Authorities recovered papers outlining Cianicia’s beliefs. He reportedly thought the U.S. government is being controlled by an elite few that believe guns pose a threat to their agenda. That agenda appears to be to gain control over government, financial outlets and the media. The documents show that Cianicia believed the elite used hidden propaganda in mindless entertainment, pushing a “New World Order” which eventually will make privacy extinct and the Constitution irrelevant.  

Ciancia’s documents claims that TSA was designed to solely intimidate the public and control anyone who disagrees or refuses to comply with the allegiance of the federal government.

While some will use the LAX shooting as an indication of the need for gun control, the only true threat at LAX last week was Paul Ciancia.
